Our menstrual cycle isn’t designed to be miserable. Periods should be without incident every 28 days without fail, shutting off by day 5, lasting no longer than 6 days, with a peak at day three, with a light to moderate flow. If this isn’t happening to you, then your estrogen is too low and you need to get it up and cycled properly.
PMS, PMDD, PCOS, and Endometriosis are all estrogen deficiency diseases and will go away once the estrogen deficiency issue is addressed. If your practitioner keeps telling you it’s “normal” and prescribes you something to treat the symptoms, find another practitioner who will take this seriously.
PMS, PMDD, PCOS, and Endometriosis may be normal but they don’t have to be.
